Three Coast meth dealers pled guilty to federal charges Monday.

Federal agents charged all three men with possession with intent to distribute. The U.S. Attorney’s office, along with the F.B.I. say they have been working these trafficking cases for some time. All men appeared in front of U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola.

Hector Serrano-Cruz, 41, provided three pounds of meth to a confidential source. He faces 40 years in prison and up to a $5 million fine.

Antonio Michael Ross, 49, tried to run from police at a check point. While fleeing officers, Ross threw a package with 100 grams of pure methamphetamine out the car window. He stands to spend life in prison and a possible $10 million fine.

And Terry Lee Reddix, was accused of distributing meth from his Van Cleave home, referred to as “the Hill”. Authorities say he sold drugs out of his home for a number of years and sold to agents several times. He could spend 40 years in prison and up to a $5 million fine.

All three will be sentenced in May.
